When he competed in his first All-Stars, Ken admitted that he'd been totally out of hand in his first PR appearance and had gone into Anger Management therapy. The results were clear and easy to appreciate, IMHO. This season's All-Stars shows that he's still taking those lessions seriously. He's a great advertisement for the efficacy of proper treatment for at least some cases. I also think he's growing as a designer and learning to accept his achievements as real. His partnership with Fabio - one of my all-time favorite designers - was harmonious and productive. I was thrilled with their win, and although I imagine Fabio no longer lives completely as a 'Freegan', I imagine he's never had a dining experience like the one they'll be sharing.
I thought Merline and Candice's pairing, which at least one judge said tried for elegance and came close read much more like 'Catfight!'. Oh, well, I'm still learning.
Anthony and Kimberly had two beautiful outfits that went together very well, but I didn't see the inspirations.
I nearly screamed when Alyssa entered the restaurant in that... thing. Her runway outfit was a great relief after that.
Whoopi was a great guest judge - gave constructive criticism, precise praise, and felt no need to score off the competitors. She can come back at any time. As for her 'fashion' credentials, she's worn some stunning and suitable things on numerous runways. I loved Alyssa's gushing over her!
